So I picked up a 96 xj and me and a buddy are building the lift from scratch. So far I have the 4.5 inch coils and springs and plan on cutting fenders. I will be running 33s and building a long arm kit. I just finished ordering the fab parts from rustys and ballistic fab and we already have all the dom steel for the arms and the drop pit arm. After the kit is done I will be doing sye and and the rear axle swat to the ford 8.8 from a explorer and the brake upgrade using wj parts. I will be also doing lockers front and rear. and custom bumpers and sliders and we also have the steel already for those. I have been planning this for over 3 months and saving for longer and now its time to roll in the grease !!!!!!!!!!

Ok so this weekend we did the lift and built the control arms. Turned out great. Need to see how much the rear settles to see if I need a spacer up front to level it out. Next is a sye and Tc drop.

Been a while since updated. I did a sye got tires and rims and bumpers. Also just finished my custom y arm build ( just want to throw in that all this was done with the help of a friend I'm not that skilled yet nor do I have a good enough welder).

Looking good. Teraflex used to make a "grand up" lift for the XJ that converted the rear from leaf to coils. Just an idea for a future mod ;)
